The Truth About Forever Chapter 14 Summary
Macy wakes up in an awful mood from a terrible nightmare in which she kept trying to jump in a car with her dad, but the car kept lurching away.
At breakfast, Macy's mom tries to talk to her, but she keeps answering phone calls on her cell after every few words.
Finally, she gets it out. She doesn't want Macy hanging around with her new friends outside of work.
Macy tries to object, but before she can get a word in, her mom's back on the phone. Nice.
When Macy goes to leave for work, her car is blocked, so her mom has to drive her.
Macy's so mad that she decides to tell the truth for once. She tells her mom about her bad dream—and then, about all the bad dreams she'd had since her dad died.
She waits for some sort of major response from her mom, but gets… nada. Nothing. Zilch.
At the library, Bethany and Amanda are all atwitter about Jason's visit, and they send Macy to sort magazines in the back room.
Suddenly, in comes…nope, not Jason.
He comes up to Macy, but mean girls Bethany and Amanda jump into action, telling him they're sure she won't be able to help him.
He gets pretty annoyed, but since they insist, he asks them his question—where did the big tongs get packed last night?
Ah, beautiful and fully deserved humiliation.
The girls back off and let them talk.
Wes tells her they could really use her help getting ready for a catering event.
She thinks about it a minute, and then, just like that, she quits.
The girls are horrified, but she jumps over the counter and walks out with Wes, free and spontaneous.
